A tiny and rarely seen 1er that borders Mazis Chambertin, once again touching the Route des Grand Crus. This has terrific drive and focus, and comes across as finer in the sophistication sense than the Craipillot.
“(from 60+ year old vines). Mild reduction pushes the fruit to the background though it does seem ripe. There is a lovely sense of verve to the delineated and solidly intense medium weight flavors that possess lovely depth and a bit more Gevrey style earth on the well-balanced, saline and persistent finish. While I suspect that both this and the Craipillot will require about the same amount of time to arrive at their respective peaks, this will probably drink a bit less well in its youth. (89-92)/2021+”
